We’re going to go ahead and say it. Super Mario Odyssey is one of the greatest Mario games ever! An absolute triumph of the platforming genre, Odyssey takes players on just that, a wonderful expedition across multiple unique planets. Play as our beloved hero Mario as he teams up with Cappy—a quirky, sentient hat with many uses—to stop Bowser from taking away Princess Peach. Explore a variety of different kingdoms and save the princess!

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Widely regarded as one of the best entries in the storied franchise, Fire Emblem: Three Houses is an absolutely incredible game. Play as the prodigious instructor Byleth as they teach one of three houses at the Garreg Mach Monastery. Navigate an incredibly complex yet engaging combat system as you lead your students to victory! With four different routes that each lead down their own incredibly fleshed out paths, this game may just be the most replayable game on the Nintendo Switch.

Metroid Dread

Without a doubt, Metroid Dread is quite possibly the greatest triumph of the Nintendo Switch era. A unique Metroid game that was in production as early as 2005, Dread was finally released many consoles later in 2021. It quickly dominated the scene, crushing records and becoming the best-selling Metroid game ever. Play as beloved heroine Samus Aran as she explores the terrifying planet ZDR. Stealthily side-scroll your way past menacing enemies as you attempt to make your way back to the ship.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

You didn’t think we’d forget, did you? Arguably the greatest game on the Nintendo Switch, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an open-world game the likes of which have never been seen before. Play as Link and explore every corner of the expansive kingdom of Hyrule as you make your way to defeat Calamity Ganon. Experience the game however you want, as Breath of the Wild offers possibly the greatest non-linear gameplay out there. Defeat enemy bases, hunt monsters, cook scrumptious meals, or just mess around with the absolutely remarkable in-game physics! No matter how you like to play, Breath of the Wild is the game for you!
